Yampa River Botanic Park has many opportunities for giving and acknowledging loved ones.
Most benches in the Botanic Park are sponsored. There is an opportunity to sponsor the five remaining benches in the Amphitheater in the Children’s Garden. These durable, recycled plastic benches are available for sponsorship at $5,000 each. A brass plaque with your name and a message will be placed on the bench for ten years.
Annual Garden Sponsorships
Annual garden sponsorships cover the maintenance of a specific garden for one season. The garden you choose will have a sign with your name. The cost is $1000 per year and includes annual membership. Please contact the office to learn which gardens are available.
Tree and Shrub Sponsorships
Tree and shrub sponsorships are available for the existing trees and shrubs at the Park. The cost varies from $300 – $2,000. A small (3” x 1.5”) tag is placed on the tree or shrub for the life of the tree. Emma Friedland, Lead Horticulturist, will schedule a Park walk to help you pick the perfect tree or shrub.
The Botanic Park is eager to work with local businesses to help grow the Park and in return, provide exposure to the thousands of visitors to the Park each year. Additional giving opportunities are available for corporate sponsors to sponsor a program or event including the Fairy Garden House Contest, Speaker Series, and Passport Through the Botanic Park.
Corporate Sponsors receive recognition including:
- Featured as a sponsor on our website and social media channels
- Your logo featured in all print publications including newspaper ads and fliers around town
- Listed as a sponsor on all event signage
- Listed as a donor in the Newsletter distributed to all of our members
Sponsor a garden with your time. There are a number of gardens within the Botanic Park where sponsorship is covered by 100% volunteer maintenance. A sponsor must commit to, at minimum, weekly maintenance of a garden to a standard established by the Horticulture Committee in order to maintain sponsorship. Sponsors are recognized with a sign at your garden and in our newsletter.
An Endowment Fund has been established at the Yampa Valley Community Foundation. If you are interested in contributing to the long-term sustainability of the Park, please contact Jennifer MacNeil, Executive Director. There is also a Capital Development fund used only to upgrade or redesign gardens and to provide capital improvement for the Park.
